The City of Youngsville is Open for Business!
Are you considering opening or relocating your business to the city of Youngsville, LA? We are open for business! In fact, now through December 31, 2019, the City of Youngsville is waiving all commercial development fees for businesses. Mayor Ken Ritter and the Youngsville City Council want to encourage commercial development. Mayor Ritter has stated “This enables us to remove those fees and really let the public know that we are open for business, and that now is a good time to not only open a business, but to expand one as well. Those several thousand dollars worth of fees that were generally going to the city’s fund, to pay for the plan review, can now be reinvested into the business to give our prospective business owners and our current business owners an opportunity to spend it on equipment, employees, training, and whatever they see fit.”
Now is the perfect time to consider opening or expanding your business into the city of Youngsville!

Youngsville’s Master Plan
Less than one year ago fewer than 1/2 of residents surveyed were satisfied with the manner in which city government was planning for growth. To address this concern, Mayor Ritter is proud to report that Youngsville’s Master Plan was officially unveiled Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at 6pm at Green T. Lindon Elementary School.
This plan outlines current issues and contains solutions. Coupled with our Growth Guidance work earlier this year, we now have a roadmap to the future of Youngsville.
In the City of Youngsville, economic development is a ‘total-community’ effort. Everyone is committed to the growth and improvement of the city and as a result you’ll find the assistance and cooperation you receive unparalleled.
